Croydon Health Services to get £4.5m cash boost
Croydon Health Services is to receive a £4.5m cash boost to help manage through the winter.
The trust, which manages Croydon University Hospital and community health services in Croydon is receiving the extra investment to help them cope with the additional pressures winter brings.
Health secretary Jeremy Hunt announced the cash injection as part of a £250m boost for trusts across England earlier today.
Croydon Central MP Gavin Barwell said he was delighted with the announcement.
He added: “The NHS as a whole is having to cope with rising numbers of people attending A&E Departments as more and more people are living with chronic conditions.
“That pressure is particularly acute in places like Croydon that for years have had a relative raw deal in terms of NHS funding.
“I’ve been lobbying hard behind the scenes for extra funding to help the new leadership at our local hospital cope with these pressures and I am delighted that the Government has responded.
“In the long term of course what we need is a fairer system of allocating NHS funding around the country.”
